Psychiatric Rehabilitation Program (PRP) works to assist individuals living with mental illness to reach a higher level of independence. The PRP program assists participants with accessing and coordinating services and resources in their communities and works to ensure that each individual has access to the best possible treatment and care.

Psychiatric Rehabilitation Programs (PRP) are for adults with serious and persistent mental illness. Services are provided onsite and offsite by trained psychiatric rehabilitation practitioners. Transportation to and from the facility is provided in the local area.

Beginning at enrollment and routinely throughout a member’s time at the PRP, skills are assessed to determine a member’s needs. If skills or resources are needed, the staff is qualified to teach, provide, or access them. Rehabilitation is provided to all members through individualized meetings, educational groups, and organized social activities. For each member,

individualized rehabilitation is provided in the environment of need as indicated by on-going assessments.
